Growing & Maintenance:

In spring, apply balanced fertilizer according to package directions. Check soil weekly for moisture. Water thoroughly when dry. Adequate water until the ground freezes is necessary to sustain plant during the winter. Prune at anytime to shape if needed. During first winter, protect from sun with a burlap barrier to lessen loss of moisture through leaves. No winter protection is necessary after roots are well-established.
